Uconnect radio - Can I borrow to plug yours into my car?
« on: April 26, 2017, 07:12:05 pm »
Is there anyone on or near to the south coast who could let me plug their Uconnect radio into my car?

I know it seems a strange request but a while ago I posted about issues I've had with retrofitting a 2016 speedo into my 2011, whereby there are a number of menus missing from the speedo. I understand from someone on the MES forum that by powering the radio and connecting two specific pins from the radio to the OBD port, it would allow the full menu to be displayed and the time and date to be set (this menu item does not exist at the moment). The most annoying thing is the time cannot be changed at present and constantly flashes. I've done a Proxy-Alignment and had the odometer corrected at an Abarth dealership. All basic functions work without issue - speed, rev counter, engine temp, outside temp, trip meters, consumption, warnings etc.

Needless to say, I'm willing to travel and provide Haribo/tea/other bribes in return, along with my eternal gratitude as I'd rather not have to buy a radio from eBay.

Thank you  :thumb:
